Two Fannin County school districts, Savoy ISD and Trenton ISD, recently released their updated plans for students to return to school amidst the spread of COVID-19.
Savoy ISD plans to open school on Monday, Aug. 17, but is subject to change. Savoy ISD will offer in-person and online learning under the latest Texas Education Agency (TEA) guidelines.
“Savoy ISD is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation concerning COVID-19. The district is prioritizing the development of procedures to protect the health and safety of our staff, students, and families,” Savoy ISD said in a statement.
Trenton ISD has not finalized its plans or its official first day of school, but the same learning styles will be available under the TEA guidelines.
“While we have not finalized our plan at this time, we have made extensive progress in our planning for face to face and remote instruction. Please know that the guidance we are receiving from TEA has continued to change due to the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, making it difficult to establish a finalized plan,” said Jeremy Strickland, Trenton ISD superintendent.
All students in extracurricular activities are eligible to participate regardless of which learning methods they choose. TEA guidelines for both learning methods among other related topics can be found online.
